Aid 4 Ukraine

Please help us raise funds to send to UNICEF to aid Ukraine ...

Ukraine Flag... they need your help so badly and UNICEF are doing all they can but need everyone's support!

We have support for the event from the WBF, the EBL, the SABF, the SPBF as a starting point and other Zones have been asked to support it as well, so we are opening the event worldwide. We will really be so grateful for all the support we can get for this event and would like to thank everyone in advance ! We are also delighted to hear that the EBU has agreed to waive the UMS charge for Engish Clubs - thanks EBU !



Dates for the event

The event will be run over five days starting on Monday 11 April 2022. So events will be played on Monday 11, Tuesday 12, Wednesday 13, Thursday 14 and Friday 15. Once again we have commentaries for each day to add to the enjoyment and these will be posted on the site when the frequencies go live - this may be the day after the event as we hope to be joined by clubs in the USA.

It will be run as a "hybrid" Sims, so you can play face-to-face or online using BBO, RealBridge, Bridge Club Live or StepBridge.


It's really not hard -

Just read through these instructions and once you have got your head around it - well, we think your players would really enjoy it. And anyway, you can always email Anna if you need help !!


How to enter

Its easy - really easy ! Just look at our "howto" page and you will see how simple it is to enter !


This is strictly a "fun" event

there are no prizes, no master points, no printed booklets. There is no specific entry fee either we simply ask players to give what they can. So it is just a chance to play a set of hands and see how you did across the field, and hopefully to have an enjoyable evening whilst raising money for Charity. Of course clubs may award their normal master points for their heat.

We don't mind what time of day (or night!) you play - the hands are different each day, so all we ask is that you observe reasonable security and please don't publish the hands on your own website until the frequencies have gone "live" on the ECatsBridge site.

Please join us if you can - just email us .. we need your name, the name of the club and the country, which day you want to play and the email address to send the hands to. Please please join us if you can!
